Portugal has it all – you can rock the beaches in Algarve, marvel at castles in Sintra, hike in the Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela and cruise along the Douro Valley!
However, there are a number of tourist targeted scams as well as petty crime to be wary of.
Note: vast majority of trips are trouble free and there is no need to be paranoid. That said, it always pays to be aware, careful, and prepared.
